Friday night date at Bistro Pastis

After I made reference to Bistro Pastis in my French Onion soup post a few weeks back, I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind.  So on a rainy Friday night, with no specific plans, we decided to brave the weather for a dinner out.

Bistro Pastis is one of my favourite relaxed, unpretentious dinner spots in Vancouver.  Although it feels “fancy”, they don’t think twice if you go in and order a couple of appetizers.  Our usual is a burnt martini(Ben),  a Kir Royale(me), French Onion soups to start and then we share a beef tartare.  But because we had French Onion soup just a while back, I was a bit more indulgent.

Frisee salad with crispy double smoked bacon and a perfectly soft poached egg.

Ben couldnt resist and when I tasted it, I was almost regretted not ordering it myself. The rich beef stock is almost magical.

My favourite beef tartare in the city with thin, crisp croutons and a lovely green salad.

The tartare is served with wonderfully hot fries and garlic mayo.
